Reviewed 18 December 2012

Perfect location!! It was a cool building on the inside with the pool located in the middle of the courtyard. Very clean with an excellent staff that were both friendly and informative. I was in town for one night in early december and it was perfect for a short stay in saratoga. look forward to seeing them again this summer if phish plays at spac!!

I booked this motel because it was close to the casino, and it was the cheapest and best rated around. The location is right downtown, right off the main strip. Check in went smooth, and they use real keys. This was a old motel that was "open air" at one point, then they put a retractable roof on it. Its really neat looking inside the center court. The room we had had 2 doors, one to the outside, and one to the court. The room itself was small but clean. TV got a good amount of channels, WiFi worked well but they had no work desk. Beds were average at best. The bathroom was very vintage with a BLUE toilet and tub, so neat! Hot water worked well, but the shower head wasnt so good. The heated pool wasnt very warm. Despite being next to the road and downtown, it wasnt very noisy. They recycle bottles cans and etc, and are a very "green" motel! Overall I felt its priced a bit high, esp off season in the winter, but id still recommend it to someone.

Stayed here two nights in early December 2012. I got the booking thru booking.com and I think it was supposed to be a room with two double beds. The desk clerk asked how many in the room and I said one, so I wound up in a small room with only one bed. I could have made a fuss or lied, but did not really see the need.

The pluses are: Clean both in room and in common areas - Refrigerator in room - Large, clean bathroom with good hot water - Good, comfortable bed - Indoor heated pool - Good quality wood furniture in room - Generally quiet - Adequate continental breakfast (carb fest) - Extremely convenient to downtown - Off-street parking
Very good price.

The minuses:Room was small and awkwardly shaped (L shape) - Only one small window looking out on parking lot - Heating pipes clanked - No heat in bathroom - Walls are a bit thin, so TV noise is heard

Room Tip: When checking in, be sure you get the type of room you booked. Rooms in the 112, 114 range are very...

We stayed overnight in Dec. 2012 and have also enjoyed this hotel before, when visiting a student at Skidmore College. We would definitely return to this clean and friendly hotel which has an indoor swimming pool. Before it was a pleasant temperature for swimming, but the pool was 80 degrees and too cold for me this time. There is a pleasant fresh breakfast laid out with a toaster, and Carolyn, the hostess made a good, needed, map for us. Letitia

You can't beat the location or the friendliness of the staff. We are always on the look out for reasonable, clean and comfortable pet friendly accomodations and the Downtowner turned out to be perfect. It's nothing fancy but it's clean and comfortable. The indoor pool is great - larger than most and very clean and must be very interesting in the summer when the roof is open to the sky! (We stayed in September during a rainy week but I still enjoyed my daily swim!) The outside has lovely window boxes with flowers and it is obvious that the owners take pride in the hotel. If you want posh, you may be disappointed but it was just fine for our needs. We enjoyed it because it was a little different than a cookie cutter chain hotel - almost a little retro! We could walk to everything and Saratoga Springs is a very dog friendly town so it was a nice visit.

Had a delightful overnight stay at the Saratoga Downtowner. We were on our way to Montreal and needed an overnight rest. What a wonderful surprise - downtown Saratoga Springs, with a pleasant, clean and very welcoming small motel right in the center of town. The rates were very good (look for a coupon in the Welcome Center booklet). The motel has old world charm with enough modern convenience and the staff could not be more helpful. Walk out of the door and you are in the center of a charming town. What more could you want?
